Volume adjust button ?
F4 (the key above the LOG key) adjusts the beeper volume when there is no menu (or the F2 menu).
I had never noticed that feature. Thanks !

Amazing ! Over a month has passed since I made the last calibration and there is no discernible change in the time setting when compared to my atomic watch.
Amazing! You own an atomic watch! :o May I ask you for a picture? Thanks in advance. 8-)
Sorry, it is top secret. ;)

Re: RTC Calibration program

Amazing ! Over a month has passed since I made the last calibration and there is no discernible change in the time setting when compared to my atomic watch. IOW, the clock is currently accurate to within a fraction of a second per month, which I find to be almost unbelievable. When I began the calib...

Re: When will we get an up to date DM42?

I think there's only been two Free42 changes that are relevant to the DM42, since the latest DM42's v2.2 and the current Free42 v2.5.9, namely the configurable word size, and a couple of fixes to SOLVE. I'd quite like to see the former, but it doesn't seem like an emergency. Why is waiting a proble...

Re: RTC Calibration program

Had a heck of a time creating the file in Win 10 with Notepad. Kept insisting on using a .txt extension instead of .cfg. Went back to an old MSDOS computer to create the file, then copied via floppy disk to my Win XT computer and then connected the DM42 to a USB port so I could copy it to the FAT d...

Re: RTC Calibration program

You could've created the file with a TXT extension and then renamed it. Tried doing that, but Win 10 wouldn't let me. The file became rtccalib.cfg.txt ! Win 10 sucks !!!!! That's odd. When I try to rename foo .txt to foo .cfg, File Explorer warns me that "If you change a file name extension, the fi...

Re: RTC Calibration program

So, I just ran this program, but when I view the FAT drive in my PC file manager, I don't see any rtccalib.cfg file in the root directory. Am I expected to create this file, or am I missing something ? The Release notes found here: https://forum.swissmicros.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2211 imply that ...
